TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - Fire crews from Tucson Fire Department and Northwest Fire District were dispatched to a fire at an apartment complex on Prince Road early on Friday, Feb. 28.

According to Capt. Barrett Baker, four units were affected by the two-alarm fire, which started at about 7 a.m.

The Southern Arizona Chapter of the American Red Cross is assisting several people who were displaced by the fire with direct client assistance and recovery planning to meet their disaster-caused needs.

Firefighters had the fire under control in 25 minutes, despite the fact that at least one hydrant did not have water, Baker said.
